The team at Thornton & Lowe supported us with a bid when there was little time remaining, they were professional and friendly. Ensured we were kept up to date with the progress and worked around our schedule. Overall, I would Highly recommend Dave and team. You will not be disappointed.
My online training session with Charles has given me a lot of constructive, personalised feedback on how to improve our bids. I highly recommend this training for anyone looking to improve the quality of their submissions and improve on their bid writing skills!
I was fortunate that my training was supposed to take place during "lockdown" so Charles and I carried it out over Zoom one to one. I had assessments to do prior, videos to watch (that I took loads of notes on!), a number of emails and then when it came to our session, Charles provided loads of great feedback giving me confidence and enthusiasm to get going on future bids.
The feedback and advice on how to improve and perfect our bid and tenders was absolutely invaluable: 1UC have already seen positive results. The whole experience went very smoothly with great communications throughout. Highly recommended!
Our first engagement with Thornton and Lowe, after the initial learning curve, went very well with Tom supporting us on the majority of bid writing in a very organised and structured approach. Considering his knowledge of the subject matter was limited he picked it up quickly and added real value to our submission. Great Work.....
A great experience - Tom was exceptional. Very professional, excellent to work with, and fun. All the things you need! Thanks Thomas Daniel
I attended the two day master class and had no previous knowledge of how to properly conduct a tender. Charles took us through everything from start to finish, in depth but clearly explained each step and provided extra support, if necessary. Highly recommend!
I attended the two day master class and it’s safe to say it’s hands down the best move for our small family business. I was completely new to the tender world and attended the course as a blank canvas. I had never even looked at a tender let alone had the tools to complete one. Charles was amazing and in my opinion he is the reason I left feeling super positive and excited to start my career change! The course covers literally EVERYTHING but he made it easy to digest. He listened to me and went above and beyond to ensure I left with no confusion! Friendly, relaxed atmosphere with all the tools and knowledge to help small and large businesses alike. 10/10 from me at Garlick demolition.
We have recently engaged Thornton & Lowe to assist us with our entry into the bid market! We are new to this - so Dave (Thornton) and his team have spent a vast amount of time researching what type of tenders we should look to bid on, how to follow them and what work we can be doing now so that we are in a position to bid when the tenders are published. He has given us great guidance (as we are absolute beginners) and as a result T&L have introduced a whole new market opportunity to us! We are looking forward to our future working relationship with them.
Recently attended a Bid Writing training course with Thornton & Lowe in Manchester.

Found it really useful and helped open my eyes a about what to differently and importantly improve my win ratio.

Charles was an excellent presenter and extremely experienced and delivered the course really well.

Cannot rate them enough.
It's a very informative course and an absolute must, if you are working with bids!
Great service provided by Thornton and Lowe and especially Adam Lee, We have been very happy with the work done so far and look forward to working with them for the next projects we have.
Did this course in January 2020 and would highly recommend it to anyone who works in or is just starting out in the world of bidding and tender writing. A great course structure with plenty of opportunity for questions etc. Charles is a great tutor and certainly knows his stuff.
After attending the 2-day masterclass in January our company's approach to the entire bid-process has been transformed. I would highly recommend the course, Charles is an excellent trainer and really breaks things down into plain English. The course would suit a variety of professionals, whether beginning their bid journey or a seasoned writer, there will definitely be knowledge to gain from attending.
I attended the 2 day bid writing masterclass in Jan 2020. The course was very useful and provided a great insight into the world of bidding. The structure of the course included both interactive and practical activities which helped me better understand how to write a more compelling bid.

Charles's knowledge and experience in bidding was shown throughout the course and he was always up for a laugh which made the course feel very relaxed.

The venue and the food was also fantastic which was a huge bonus!

Thank you Charles!
I was on the 2-day bid writing masterclass in Jan 2020.

I have around a year and a half of experience in bid writing, and I found the course informative, engaging and held a lot of interesting and insightful points.

Charles is a great tutor! The course didn't feel stuffy at all, I left with a lot of good documents and processes I can implement going forward (and the food was great). Thanks Charles!
The course was exceptional. Charles has an excellent knowledge of bid writing and related to everyone to make sure they got the most out of the course. I would definitely recommend this.
I attended the Bid Writing course in Birmingham in November 2019. It was a fast paced, interesting training event with useful ideas to put into practice. Charles is a very knowledgeable and engaging trainer. Our group had a variety of work contexts and it was very useful to hear other viewpoints. I'd recommend this event to others as being good value for money and well organised.
The responsiveness to our needs was first rate and nothing seemed to phase the T&L team. The quality of our bids improved substantially as a result of their support and most importantly we won the important bids we were targeting. The BSP programme was very cost effective as compared to having an in-house bid manager and gave us access to a range of bid experts.
Excellent training course on bid writing. This course was informative, providing tips on structure and content. I can't believe I'm excited to write my first bid:)
